I had a complaint fromone of our appt lines of someone continually calling and hanging up. they said they got the number of the caller from Caller ID. when I checked on the number it came back to the Consumer Protection Agency. Specifially the number you call to opt out of telemarketing calls. When I checked with our local Telco they said it looked like somone has been "spoofing" that number.
They have a lot of guts to use that number. I did file a report with the CPA. I doubt if anything will come of it, but the calls have stopped. before that we had it call about 19 times in 3 days.

ATTITUDE: It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.

They are spoofing the CID or ANI? Spoofing ANI is illegal period. Spoofing the CID is illegal if you try to represent yourself as that person (phone fraud).
